Dr. Priscilla Joe is a neonatologist who cares for critically ill newborns and infants, particularly those who are born prematurely or with congenital conditions. At UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, she is the medical director of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). She also leads quality improvement efforts in the NICU and directs Oakland’s neurological NICU program.
In research, Joe looks at ways to better involve families in the care of their babies while they are in the NICU. She also studies care for babies with neurological conditions. An advocate for newborn health worldwide, she has led newborn care training programs in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Uganda and Nepal.
Joe earned her medical degree at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. She completed a residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in neonatology at UCSF.
When she's not caring for patients, Joe enjoys spending time with her husband and three kids as well as rooting for her favorite sports teams, which include the Oakland A's, Las Vegas Raiders and Gonzaga Bulldogs. She loves gardening and traveling to different baseball stadiums and national parks. She hopes to become a master gardener one day.
